Greyhounds were bred to be the fastest dogs on earth. Yet for decades tens of thousands were destroyed, abandoned and abused each year when they couldn't run fast enough. Scrappy Marion Fitzgibbon became obsessed with saving these dogs when she became head of the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Along with an American greyhound rescuer, a foxhunter's wife, a British Lady and a powerful German animal advocate, she fights to create a sanctuary where animals heal and thrive. Their pioneering work is part of a global movement to close race tracks and find homes for these misunderstood dogs. In this David versus Goliath story (including the rescue of her own dog, Lily), Schenone takes us into a complex world of impassioned people who stood up for millions of animals.
The impossibly moving story of how Judy, World War Two's only animal POW, brought hope in the midst of hell. Judy, a beautiful liver and white English pointer, and the only animal POW of WWII, truly was a dog in a million, cherished and adored by the British, Australian, American and other Allied servicemen who fought to survive alongside her. Viewed largely as human by those who shared her extraordinary life, Judy's uncanny ability to sense danger, matched with her quick-thinking and impossible daring saved countless lives. She was a close companion to men who became like a family to her, sharing in both the tragedies and joys they faced. It was in recognition of the extraordinary friendship and protection she offered amidst the unforgiving and savage environment of a Japanese prison camp in Indonesia that she gained her formal status as a POW. Judy's unique combination of courage, kindness and fun repaid that honour a thousand times over and her incredible story is one of the most heartwarming and inspiring tales you will ever read.

Pets and Puppies is Monica Easton's personal account of a life devoted to animals, tracking the joys and sorrows of pet ownership. Packed with anecdotes, verse and stories, this book also chronicles Monica's work with guide dog puppies during the first year of their life and training. Monica's household has been home to a mixed bag of creatures providing plenty of stories: some happy, some sad, some very unusual, but all made life very interesting and entertaining. With tales of a fleet-footed hamster who could climb 14 stairs in 9 seconds, a football playing dog who was a wizard on the dribble and a polecat that gave birth to a litter of eights kits the day after she was rescued, Pets and Puppies gives an insight into the life of an animal lover. After the death of her first pet dog, Monica applied to walk guide dog puppies and was accepted as a volunteer. She spent thirty years walking twenty-seven puppies in preparation for their further training at a year old. In her book, she recounts the different characters she met along the way: puppies who refused to walk, one who was agoraphobic, one who play fought with their bantam cock, another who stole food, shredded clothes and toys, and one who needed hydrotherapy treatment after surgery. The book also tells of dogs that did not qualify to become guide dogs and returned to Monica's family to enrich their lives, and some who returned to them after retirement and still offered a challenge.
